Just Love More... THE Secret

That is my mantra for this season and 2015.


Just love more was a message I received while meditating and praying, feeling a bit overwhelmed. Do you ever have those moments of yikes?


As I reflected on the words, simple and profound, I realized that if I just loved more my work would be better, my relationships better and life so much more joyful.


In fact, I would be living life as a sermon.

Enjoy the reason for the season. Love and goodwill towards all.


Peace on Earth.


Love and Hugs, Ellen

Up Your Emotional Intelligence

We tend to make things difficult. Okay, maybe it is just me.


Emotional intelligence accounts for 69% of job performance.


Want to be seen as a team player and leader -- a must have asset to any group or organization?


For the next week focus on being an encourager and up lifter to all, including yourself. Smile more. Be a solution finder!


Notice if people respond to you differently. They will :).


Being a must have asset always begins with you! Every choice counts!

Judgment Free at last

Wow! What an epiphany this morning that I want to share.


There are no failures, just learnings. There are no wasted experiences. 2 beliefs I have.


Today it hit me there is no "bad"... everything is for growth to become the truth of who we are.


The truth of who we are -- ready ---


LOVE.


The more love for self, the more love we can have for others --- that is authentic awesome amazing leadership. To love ourselves and others to GREATNESS!

Festering

Festering? What words come to mind? What emotion does that word evoke? Not so happy ones in general, right?


I've been engaged to help in a situation that got out of control because festering was allowed thus creating ill feelings between co-workers.


As a leader, if you see a situation like that occurring, talk to the parties involved ASAP. If ignored, the ill will usually escalates.


To avoid festering in the first place, be courageous. Approach the person immediately and speak your truth without diminishing or blaming the other person. You'll be amazed that when done with grace at the on start, the situation in 99% of cases are resolved. People cannot read your mind. I learned the hard way. Hoping you don't have to :).


Have a happy day! Fester-less!

Peace is a Choice!

Hope this finds you having had a fabulous, joy-filled Thanksgiving.


As we enter the holiday season of love, let's remember that everything and everyone is our teacher to become our best selves. The employee who steps on your last nerve, the relative who makes us squirm are here to teach us that peace is possible regardless.


When we embrace the idea that everything is a coaching moment to greatness, we can smile and say thanks for helping me be greater.


I am peace is my mantra for this season of love. What will be yours?


The choice is ours!
